    A. No. Partial withdrawals are not allowed on any MBSB fixed deposit schemes.

    Q. What are the conditions for premature withdrawal on MBSB fixed deposit accounts?

    A. If you open any fd with tenure from 1 to 3 months, then you will not earn any profit for premature withdrawal.

Withdrawal of fixed deposits after completion of 3 months will get 50% of the total accrued profit.

    Q. Can I top up my fixed deposit account before the maturity date?

    A. No. You are not allowed to top up your fixed deposit at any point during the tenure period.

    Q. What do i need to do to renew my fixed deposit?

    A. MBSB will renew your fixed deposit automatically once the prevailing fixed deposit matures. The auto renewal would be allowed for either principal amount or principal with profit. If you want to change any terms of the fd such as tenure or principal amount, you need to notify the bank during the time of maturity.

    Q. Would my fixed deposit be renewed for the same interest rates?

    A. If you wish to renew your fixed deposit, the interest rate that would apply to your fixed deposit would be the prevailing interest rate that MBSB is offering at the time of renewal. You can know the prevailing interest rate before renewal by means of notices at bank premises or on MBSB website. If you do not wish to renew at the prevailing interest rate, you can always choose not to renew.

    Q. Are there any risks involved in these fixed deposit schemes?

    A. There are no risks involved in any of these fixed deposit unless you withdraw your fd prematurely. Do remember that MBSB is not a member of Malaysia Deposit Insurance Corporation (MDIC), hence your funds are not covered by MDIC.
